Latest News: Fall Risk Reduction Certification & Coaching Now Available!
All professionals working in medical/hospital, rehabilitation, skill nursing, assisted-living, and home health settings recognize the important role they each play in preventing falls. Assessing fall risk, modifying the environment for increased safety, patient/caregiver education/training and rehabilitation all contribute to fall prevention. Despite all of the emphasis and effort placed upon fall prevention, it remains a costly problem for most institutions and for patients who suffer from the debilitating effect of falls. This program is designed to educate and certify participants in Interactive Metronome’s Fall Risk Reduction Program. This six-webinar on-demand series focuses on incorporating Interactive Metronome (IM) into the treatment plan with various patient populations at risk for falling, while emphasizing two often-overlooked features of fall prevention: 1) that each professional who encounters the patient is responsible for identifying fall risk and intervening to prevent falls, and 2) how timing in the brain (or temporal processing) is at the heart of fall risk and prevention, including its effect on several systems: musculoskeletal, proprioceptive, oculomotor, vestibular,
cognitive and communicative.
